Yesterday I started chapter 12 and I wrote a post about that . I started with Cristan’s POV.
Today I will continue to work through writing chapter 12 .
So in this chapter I want to have 4 pov scenes , finishing up with Xavier’s pov . However, I might change my mind and save his scene for later . It depends on how the rest of the chapter flows.
But today writing schedule looks to be me trying to finish up at least two scenes .
Right now there is about 480 words in this first scene. Hopefully I can get at least 500 words today . Hopefully.
I have written this first scene in chapter 12 completely over from scratch . Way different from my other drafts . I had the first draft where Cristen walked into the town without the pack to find Adrian . And then I had a screenplay draft where he took Bastian and Imani. This draft will be a mashup of parts from the screenplay draft and the 1st draft.
I want to delve further into Sirena’s dance teacher Nadiya . In the first draft she is introduced in the 2nd chapter. And her father Zios is deleted in this draft but was introduced in chapter 5 in the first draft.
In this draft Nadiya was introduced in the 3rd chapter briefly . However she plays a significant role especially in the first draft in helping the pack at the end of story. And she has secrets she has to be revealed .
So I feel this chapter to be a good point to delve further in her character through Sirena ‘s POV . In the first draft in this scene both her father and her asked Sirena about Cristen because he bumped into them looking for Adrian. They never seen him before .
So I think I could write it the same way but just without her father Zios. That is another decision I had to make because there were just too many characters in my story already. Even though he played a significant role. But I can make it work without him .
That is what I’ll do.
